Since 1987 is Sound Supply the supplier for audio tours and audio related content for many musea in the Netherlands.
After almost 20 years and the eyes on the future, it is time to rebrand the company and give it a fresh and clean visual identity that last for another 20 years.
For this project I asked myself two questions: “How does a logo sound?” and “How can you visualise sound?”. I researched multiple methods to visualise sound and developed a technique to visualise a sound and transform this to an image. With this method I created the logo which has the sound literally integrated in the logo. Scroll down to see the making of.
